I finished the Pumpkin project! (From the Rowan purelife recycled collection, worked in Rowan Purelife Revive). What a great top for work. I love it. I paired it with a wide leg pant but it would also work with a khaki skirt. The yarn was really interesting to work with. The silk slubs gave it an interesting texture and kept new fun colors popping up from time to time. The colors that I used: Grit (aqua), Silt (orange) and Scree (green).
I am already thinking that I might cast on for the Shallot sweater (above) in the book as well. But before I take on another sweater, I should probably finish a few in my closet. It is just so hard to concentrate on wool pullovers when it is 70 degrees outside.
Why not whip out small summery tops instead? We just added another great one to our shop sample collection. Those of you who have been knitting for awhile will remember this one. It is the Orangina from Stef Japel. Back in the day before Ravelry, bloggers were our main source of patterns (can you imagine?!), and this one was rather popular one summer. We worked it up in Rowan Sienna, and it is just lovely! Here is our creepy mannequin modeling it for you. It took just four skeins of Sienna for the 34″ size.
